Patricia Love Obituary

Patricia Ann Love of Hines Oregon passed away peacefully in her home on June 27, 2023. Patti was born on January 25, 1945, to Henry and Alberta Mathew in Coos Bay Oregon. 

Patti graduated high school from Marshfield H.S. in 1963. Through the years she worked at a variety of jobs... hospital candy striper, Dairy Queen, US Bank, was a Realtor, Summer Lake Inn Cook, and a Traffic Safety Flagger for Lake County. Her hobbies were quilting, sewing which she gifted to family and friends, gardening, and working out in her yard (which always looked beautiful) Her favorite flowers were her daffodils. 

With Patti's love for quilting, in 1992 Patti and Mel decided to create an award at the Lake County Fair to attract more participation for handmade quilts to be entered and shown. This was the creation of the Love Quilt Award which is still awarded today.
